Only got a $0.10, $0.11 and $0.15 sale this PM. Not worth the electric bill on uploading anymore images, so will not upload new images until the pay rates go
up again.

I'm on LEVEL 4.

Same here.  I have a bunch of normal sales but then noticed I have about a dozen photos that I got 12 cents for.  THIS IS UTTER BULLSHIT SHUTTERSTOCK.  This is as low as when you opened back in 04... the rates were a crime then... add to that the inflation over that period that has driven my cost of living to almost four times what it was then and I can't think with it at all.  12 cents won't even buy me one minute in a parking meter in LA.

Will somebody please flush the toilet on this turd of a stock photo agency already!

Well said. I will close my account once I get paid, SS can go to hell.

I have many photographer friends who laugh at me when I was saying SS pay .38 cents an image, they say its not worth the trouble to upload at that price. Now at .10 cents an image, what a joke, well it was ok while it lasted, adobe stock is the way for me now, I'll be closing after payment. The thing is I have the same shots on both sites so my adobe will suffer, I wont let that happen.

Welcome June! when I woke up on this morning and got notif from SS that my vector sold out. I check the webpage and you know what, I'VE GOT 10 CENTS. It doesn't matter since I move into AdobeS last month where I submit vector for the first time and sold 23cents and then I know where I should be live.

I made one sale today.  I'm at level 2 (20%) and I made 10 cents!  I use to make minimum 25 cents per download.  WTF!

Same here

Just got my 1st sale for $0.10. I'm so motivated now. So, I'm gonna leave SS.

BTW, I'm at level 2. But I saw even level 4 contributors are getting $0.10.. What a joke guys?

 

If you still think you will be contributing here, you are crazy.

And, if you continue uploading here, you are also helping to destroy the valuable creative industry.

Believe it or not, it is worse at Istock. I can’t tell you how many downloads I have had for a penny or three cents, five cents, six cents. It is very demoralizing, I’ve stopped submitting certain types of photos because of the time involved. I can never break even for some types of photos. Sad to see Shutterstock in a race to the bottom.
